Langley's City's WiFi on-the-cheap has garnered attention.
B-Net provides low cost public WiFi using four hot spots in downtown Langley City with the intention to add more.
The units cost about $200, much less than other systems.
At the recent convention of the Municipal Information Systems Association of British Columbia (MISA BC), the City's IT manager, Ken Ogden, accepted the Spirit of Innovation Award for the project and will represent B.C. at a national technology conference.
"I'm excited to do a presentation there," Ogden said.
MISA BC will sponsor Ogden at the GTECH conference in Ottawa in November where he will represent B.C. at the national government technology convention.
Businesses can get details on joining B-Net on the City website.
The City figures another dozen hot spots, on top of the four existing ones, will be needed for WiFi coverage of the downtown core.
